RTPI Awards Finalist

ELG Planning are delighted to have received confirmation from the RTPI East of England that we have been shortlisted for the 2017 East of England Award for Planning Excellence.

Fletton Quays, a £120 million development which will create a vibrant extension to the city centre.

Construction started on Fletton Quays earlier this year. Regenerating an area of Peterborough which has been largely derelict since the 1970s, the development will include high-quality new homes, office accommodation, a hotel, restaurant, leisure and retail facilities with outstanding views across the River Nene.

The awards, run by the Royal Town Planning Institute’s East of England Region, recognise the positive impact planning has on our quality of life and celebrate the contribution that planners and planning make to society.

Howard Bright, Principal Development Manager at Peterborough Investment Partnership, spoke about the award success: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award as it is recognition of the unique approach we have taken to the Fletton Quays development.

“Our planners work closely with a project team of experts and colleagues at Peterborough City Council to come up with innovative solutions that go beyond simply addressing the issues posed by the site. This collaboration will result in the provision of a high-quality and sustainable redevelopment which will see the historically under-utilised riverside made accessible and brought to life for the benefit of the whole city.”

Councillor John Holdich, Leader of Peterborough City Council, said: “Being shortlisted for this award is a fantastic achievement for the team who have worked so hard to make this development happen.

“This is a really exciting time for the project as work is well underway on both the office accommodation and apartments on the site. Fletton Quays is really starting to take shape.”
